Your pillow is one of the most important things in your bed. If you slept with your pillow wrong, you could suffer for days afterward, feeling groggy, irritable, and tense.
The wrong pillow can affect your sleep by causing you to sleep on your neck or your shoulders. The pillow might be loose and floating around, making your neck tense and sore.
Getting the right pillow is not about being a “special needs” person. No, you can’t just go and buy any pillow and expect it to do the job. However, getting a bad pillow can lead to all kinds of bad habits and issues, so it’s important to know what you’re doing.
If you’re searching for the best pillow on Amazon, the Eden pillow typically appears as a top choice, with 74% of its current 14K reviewers giving it a 5-star rating. When I tested it myself, I found that the pillow’s quilted cover was one of our favorite features, because not only does it make the pillow feel extra soft, but it effectively grips onto a pillowcase so that it doesn’t slide around in the night. The pillow has a ventilated gusset around the sides that effectively pushes out hot air.
The Coop Home Goods pillow is a shredded memory foam pillow that can be zipped open to add or remove stuffing — it even comes with an extra bag of foam just in case you want it super jet-puffed! The foam is lightweight and slow reacting, and it feels significantly airier than a solid piece of foam.
I think that sleepers of all types who prefer a soft, cozy pillow would enjoy the Eden — just as long as you’re OK with removing some of the memory foam to get its loftiness just right for you.
